How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Canon's PowerShot G series has always been a reliable pick for compact enthusiasts, and the G16 is no exception. The G16 is easy to use thanks to a menu system that Digital Trends says is "simple to use for photographers of any level." The design hasn't really been overhauled, with the flash remaining a standard pop-up that CNET wishes "could tilt back to bounce." However, in the optics department the G16 delivers "excellent image quality" according to Trusted Reviews, and PC Mag calls the video quality "crisp and sharp." For enthusiasts who don't want or need to fiddle with lenses, the G16 is a solid choice.

Canon's G1 X Mark III is its first APS-C sensor compact
